We’re glad to welcome two great bands to our studios today… Awesome Color performs live at noon and The Black Heart Procession is live at 3 pm!

Here’s what you can expect from The Black Heart Procession

“Theirs is the sound of driving at night across the West. Like the wide-open landscape, this is music that knows how to be both desolate and lush. And it knows that while sadness pulls you down, discontent pushes you forward. So the Procession never stops. Here, a songs 6/8 beat will pull you into a moody seductive waltz and next, the violin and piano evoke the house band of a lonesome cabaret with the lights turned low. Then the strings stop their mournful crying and shift into a propulsive thrum, and now weve got the pedal to the metal and were heading straight down the open road into a cinematic twilight.” – Read more
